you need to do is pick up or logon to papers like "the boston globe." >>> president obama talking about the hometown paper at white house correspondents' dinner. and joining me from baus kevin cullen columnist for "boston globe." >> i hope he follows that up with a digital subscription. >> now, you had a richly detailed piece in the paper the other day about the scene at the boat where dzhokhar tsarnaev was captured and the police supervisor on the scene yelling, hold your fire and turning to the squad team, he hurt your guy, cuff him. how did you get the police officers to recount the story in such detail? >> howie, the best way to explain it. obviously, this is the most followed news story for the last two weeks in the world. for us here at "the boston globe" it is a local story. so, one of the reasons, personally, this has such an impact on me is that i know a lot of these first responders. i mean, i've known them for years and that's why i think it was a little different. i was in northern ireland in 1998 and in london in 2005 when more than 50 people were m murdered on the tu
that president obama used to talk about overuse. in a speech he gave to congress in his first term, he mentioned it, that we need to curtail overuse. but i don't hear president obama talking about overuse anymore as a factor in reducing medicare spending. so once again it's going to be informed members of the public who will have to put it back on the agenda. citizens will have to be the ones to correct the misallocation of resources because it will not self-correct. while preparing for talk, i was thinking about what are some of the solutions, and i was in princeton, new jersey, a couple of weeks ago walking along nassau street, and there was a bookstore. and there was a quote in that book store about how democracy -- to fix our democracy, we need more democracy. we need more informed citizens who are aware of what's going on to serve as a countervailing influence, a check and balance in the system. i think the biggest challenge we face is that health care companies whose primary duty is to shareholders, they have to demonstrate increased revenue and profitability. they have to do that as a con
week was opening of president george w. bush's library. we saw president obama talk about his own future presidential library. let's take a listen. [video clip] ine have suggested we put it my birthplace, but i would rather keep it in the united states. [laughter] did anybody not see that joke coming? , maybe dick morris. an excerpt from the president's speech at last night's white house correspondents' dinner. terry is in maryland on the democrats' line. caller: i love your show. i have watched the white house correspondents' dinner many times in my 67 years. i thought last night was the very best. the president and conan were fabulous, and i love the way they ended them, both of them. some of the republicans calling and i think is sour grapes because they did not win last time. but i love c-span, and the president and conan were wonderful. the best white house correspondents' dinner probably ever seen, and thanks a lot. host: independent call, new york. caller: >> i just want to point out that the whole thing the americanhat people no longer have any media to trust. is all about
to take you back to the white house correspondents' dinner where president barack obama is talking about his offensive in washington. >> i am not giving up. in fact, i'm taking my charm offense on the road. a texas barbecue with ted cruz. kentucky blue grass concert with rand paul. and a book burning with michele bachmann. my charm offense has helped me learn a few things in congress. it turns out, absolutely nothing. but the point of my charm offensive is simple. we need to make progress on simple issues. take the sequester. republicans fell in love with this thing and now they can't stop talking about how much they hate it. it's like we're trapped in a taylor swift album. one senator who has reached across the aisle recently is marco rubio. but i don't know about 2016. i mean, the dguy has not even finished a single term in the senate and he thinks he's ready to be president. kids these days. i, on the other hand, have run my last campaign. on thursday, as ed mentioned, i went to the opening of the bush presidential library in dallas. it was a wonderful event and that inspired me to ge
. for beingso much here. let's talk about what we learned last week and president obama talking about the potential of a chemical weapons. evan mcmorris-santoro, where we add in this? why is the white house's stance significant? guest: there has been a lot of debate. the obama administration said a few months ago, they drew the proverbial red line about chemical weapons, the idea that of chemical weapons were used, they would cross the line and we would see engagement. that is what people read about that. there were reports that some chemical weapons may have been used. shortly thereafter, the white house was engaged on that and some observers felt they change the way the red line works. the white house says it was a systematic use. we're seeing a lot of discussion about persian towards what might be u.s. involvement. it's unfair to say that will happen or not. the white house is now talking about using chemical weapons and what it means for how the united states in gauges. host: the associated press has this headline -- obama's syrian caution. one of the conversations going on in con
talked about the decision, should be do health care or not? and obama'sed a sliders saying do not do health care. what the public wants is you to focus on the economy. unemployment is 10%. that's where you need put your efforts. don't want you being diverted. and what essentially persuaded obama for him to decide i'm doing health care anywhere was his legacy, providing for greatness, he needed health care, a goal that eluded presidents for a century. so, two members of his coalition presidency spent their terms locking horns they wouldn't be able to have the kind of achievements, establish the kind of record that would have important legacy for the ages. so, that's why i think it would work out. it's not only my fairly educate guess but we have other support. switzerland i like to use as an example. does it work anywhere else? in switzerland they're executive branch they call a federal council, hat seven department heads, and they possess equal decisionmaking authority. there's no first among equals. they really are truly equals. they rotate through the presidency for one year term a
of the "washington post." fair to say president obama has put himself in a box on syria. he kept talking for months about red lines, game changers, but he's clearly mindful of the bad intelligence that led to the invasion of iraq, and it's also clear, he's never wanted to get involved in syria. is there a graceful way out? >> what he's trying to do now is insist on ironclad proof. you wonder if he doesn't want an affidavit signed by bashar assad himself saying, yes, we did indeed use sarin gas on those people. short of that, i don't think he's going to do anything. the situation is so well advanced now. might have been different if we moved in there earlier. a president who didn't want to intervene to stop the deaths of what is now 70,000 people i don't think is going to go on at least arguably incomplete evidence that there's been these chemical weapons used. so my sense is, he doesn't want to do anything. for now at least he isn't going to do anything. >> do you think there's a downside in terms of his credibility in the middle east? >> it won't bother people going about their daily lives in amer
public awareness, if you see something, say something? >> i think it's part of what jim was talking about which is playing into president obama's narrative of the middle east. we don't have to worry. problem solved. war in afghanistan is over. no problem here because i got osama bin laden. guess what? radical islam still exists and there are people that pose a threat to this country this was a terrible wake-up call america again. >> and they made an excuse for terrorism like this piece that appeared on front page of "time magazine", did boxing damage play a role in the boston bombing, suggesting that tamerlan tsarnaev's brain may have been traumatized during the year he boxed. that may have explained what he decided to do in that. >> i happen to be a person who is actually passion putting people under an mri machine and find out what happened. i understand. what is really interesting as we go forward and not any media stories about that, what do the hippo logs going to do with some of this information that perhaps that is dangerous. that is whole area to be explored. >> jon: then there wa
's not a job require. but a sense of humor helps if you are a leader of the free world and we will talk about president obama's performance at the white house correspondents dinner. gps continues right now. >>> we are piecing together how the alleged boston bombers radicalized themselves over the internet and posted their thoughts on twitter. we watched as the internet disseminated their images within a few minutes beginning the sequence of events that led to their capture. is technology a help or hindrance? i have a great person to answer the question. eric schmitt is the executive chairman of google and he has a new book that explores this and other ideas. it is called the new digital age, reshaping the future of people, nations and business. jarrod cohen has worked previously at the state department and as part of the time 100 i should add. thank you, guys. when you watched this boston episode, what did you think about the pow er of technology for the -- the process of self radicalizing on the internet is fascinating where people no longer need a community. they no longer need a leader. th
, for me, was so powerful during the election was the time when obama actually had to come out and talk explicitly about race. because one of the things -- >> he did it here if philadelphia. >> he did it right here in philadelphia. one of the ironies, there's so many ironies in our contemporary political moment, but one of the most powerful ones is the first black president is the one who can talk the least about race. it's the third, fourth and fifth rail for that -- i mean, there's something about race that he knows he can't discuss, and part of what he tried to do in that moment at least was to say let me say something th think is going to bring people together that's forward thinking, and then hopefully i'll never have to bring it up again. and there's something about that, i think, in some ways that is quintessential paranoia. the idea is americans are so fatigued about race, they're so resistant to thinking about racial inclusion that to even bring up the idea of race too often means folks are going to disqualify you from the highest office in the land. you're not going to be a pr
. president obama actually made a point this week i think is worth bringing up. lot of talk this week about george w. bush's legacy because of the opening of his library and a lot in that legacy that -- you know, controversial or disastrous but there is something that he was a little bit ahead of his time on at least within his party and -- president obama did -- you know, talked about it. we are going to show that. >> seven years ago president bush started a conversation about speaking to the american people about our history as a nation of laws and immigrants. even though comprehensive immigration reform has taken little longer than any of us expected, i am hopeful that this year with the help of speaker boehner and some of the senators and members of congress who are here today, that we bring it home. for our families and our economy and security. and for the incredible country that we love and if we do that, it will be -- in large part thanks to the hard work of president george w. bush. >> so i -- look. this passes. i don't know how much credit bush deserves. worth noting he spotted th
house correspondents' dinner. obama took the stage saying that for his second term he has new plans. and a new look. >> "i understand second term, need a burst of new energy, try some new things. my team and i talked about. we're willing to try anything so we borrowed one of michelle's tricks. i thought this looked pretty good." after walking in to rap music.obama used this year's annual dinner to poke fun of himself and some of his political adversaries. the north korean government says it is putting an american citizen on trail for allegedly plotting to overthrow the communist regime. kenneth bae has been in custody since early november. but the exact nature of his alleged crimes have not been revealed.

to talk about syria. we will talk about this in the next smet length with the israeli ambassador. i want to ask you guys about it as well. after stating the use of chemical weapons was a red lien this week president obama seemed to back off that. take a look. >> this is not an on or off switch. this is an ongoing challenge that all of us have is to be concerned about. >> chris: senator manchin, as a member of the senate the armed services committee are you, first of all, persuaded that the assad regime did use chemical weapons and what do you make of the fact that the ident seemed to set this marker assad stepped over it and now he is backing away? >> from what i have been told and seen and in the briefings i have had, it shows that they have used it and do have the capa. there is some question after as we know iraq and how that had gone so there is questions in senators' minds, i believe. when we watch this whole thing unfold in syria right now, we look at syria from the standpoint do we send troops in. there is people advocating that. do we give all of the support we can to the allies
. >> chris: for months president obama said if assad used chemical weapons it would be he a game changer and now he seems to be steering away from any talk of precipitous action. let's see that then and now you. >> that is a red line for us and that there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons. this is going to be a long-term proposition. it is not going be something that is solved easily overnight. >> chris: i understand you are not calling for any action. is your government troubled at all that red lines and enormous consequences have now you become a "long-term proposition"? >> we have a different red line entirely. if the syrian regime tries to transfer chemical weapons or what we call game changing weapons to the is systems in lebanon israel will react and we are serious about the red line and sticking about the red line and the people in syria though that. the chemical weapons situation again is very, very complex. this is an american call. the united states and israel are sovereign countries and we ha
need a lawyer? here's one for you. they immediately stopped talking. >> the judge interfered with the investigation. >> question. how big an embarrassment is this for president obama? >> i think it's -- i don't believe you can blame president obama. it's underneath him. it's the fbi. i agree with susan that basically this is a lack of coordination in all of these agencies. a lack of follow-up. something went wrong that was supposed to go right after 9/11. >> what's disturbing -- excuse me, i think we are going around the circle here. i don't think you can fault president obama on this. but you can look at maybe some of these procedures, maybe they can be tightened up. self-radicalized over the internet, which is what this appears to be. the lone wolf. this is tough to find out until -- >> don't bring these kinds of guys into the country. >> susan? >> self-radicalized over the internet until he traveled overseas doing god knows what for several months. a lot of these answers we may never get because as we were saying, they stopped the questioning at a critical moment. and it'

about obama it's because they really didn't understand a thing. they thought that he was a muslim because of his name, and it was like a preconceived notion of talking from expense because i live in israel part of the time. i have a best friend who hates obama. she hated him. she could never say a nice thing about him. and as of the last visit, she called to say i was 100% wrong. and i have heard many israelis tell me that, a lot more than the 18% that you know about. people from all over. my family members, everybody was always complain about obama. not anymore. that last visit really made a huge difference. [applause] >> what's the interesting thing is that -- oh, yes. people were saying that the speech he made before in egypt, he was apologizing for america. in fact, speaking to that audience which was made up i as a mostly of arabs and mostly muslims, he began this speech, obama this is, by same -- saying america's reliance with israel is ironclad which is very brave i think in front of a few thousand arabs and muslims. >> how can you reconcile the fact that obama is strictly
out more than a dozen scholarships per year. he cannot thank you enough mrs. obama for being here to help us give out the scholarships. she will do that again in a minute. but it think it would be better for me to talk before she doesn't before you know -- so you know exactly what she is doing and how awful that is.

move was president obama endorsing president bush's leadership on immigration and saying that this was his legacy, and let's vindicate his vision. grassley, ahuck ranking member of the senate judiciary said, after the boston bombings, all this talk about immigration reform, it is time to look at immigration laws and policies already in place to make sure we are addressing national security issues. >> the bombings have implications on terror policy, implications on the miranda rule and all of that. it does not have any implications in reality of immigration. i know is being used left and right but you will have immigrants, going back to the early 19th century, 20th- unexpected is not and it is the price of immigration, of which the good that we get from immigrants far weighs theseut feelings of this affection or violence. >> amazingly, we sit here week after week talking about how washington is dysfunctional. this is the first time i thought they would do something. the stars are in alignment. really, the republicans cannot afford to bid anti-immigration. >> i am not sure
?s event. [laughter] we also have something else in common, i too recently got in trouble for talking about a public official's good looks. it was when i would not shut up about that stone cold fox, secretary of transportation ray lahood. oh, man. i like the cut of his jib. [laughter] president obama, you had some great jokes. it was a pleasure watching you stand here and do what i do. now it is only fair that i get to do what you do. that is right, ladies and gentlemen, for the next 15 minutes i will be mired in a dysfunctional standoff with congress. this is going to be fun.

to come back to the issue of president bush's legacy but the security threats facing president obama as well. i was in dallas covering the dedication of the bush presidential library and i had a chance to catch up with former bri british prime minister tony blair to talk about his thoughts on the middle east, the bush legacy, and some of the big foreign policy tests now facing president obama. you are in this pivot point politically of being so closely associated with president clinton politically, the new labor party, at a time he was refashioning the democratic party. and yet your legacy will forever also be intwined with president bush and his response to the war on terror. it's a very interesting place in political history. >> there was a british prime minister when he was once asked what is the toughest thing about being prime minister he said events, dear boy, events. what happens is something comes of a game-changing nature or world-changing anywnature like and everything changes. i was very closely associated with president clinton and still have a good and strong relationshi
and it was like a preconceived notion and i'm talking from experience because i live in israel part of the time. i have a best friend who hates obama. she hated him and could never say a nice thing about him. after the last visit she called to say she was 100% wrong and i have heard many israelis tell me that, a lot more than 18% that you know about. people from all over, family members, everybody was always complaining about obama. not anymore. that last visit really made a huge difference. [applause] >> one thing is, oh yes. people were saying the speech he made before in egypt, he was apologizing for america and in fact dashed up made up mostly of arabs and muslims obama says that america's alliance with israel is ironclad. >> how can you reconcile the that obama is strictly for israel quinn benjamin netanyahu came and they had a meeting and obama excused himself from that meeting to go to his family dinner and left benjamin netanyahu is sitting there? >> it's amazing isn't it that the leaders of two great nations, their personal animosity should have such an effect. you think is great diplomat
. mary beth thank you so much for talking with me. i so appreciate it. >> thank you so much. >>> when we come back in the "newsroom," last night the white house correspondents dinner took place. president obama took the stage but he also took tim responders who rushed in to help. we'll look at what else he said ahead and we'll run some his jokes by you, too.

. up next, what would president obama and form er first lady barbara bush chatting about at the bush library? i found that the most fascinating conversation. jimmy kimmel has some guesses as to what they may have been talking about. i love this stuff. that's in the sideshow in about a minute. this is "hardball," a place for politics. look at this. then michelle tries to get in on it. clusters of pustules, pimples. i had this shingle rash right next to my spine. the soreness was excruciating. it was impossible to even think about dancing. when you're dancing, your partner is holding you. so, his hand would have been right in the spot that i had the shingles. no tango. no rhumba. you can't be touched. for more of the inside story, visit shinglesinfo.com ...amelia... neil and buzz: for teaching us that you can't create the future... by clinging to the past. and with that: you're history. instead of looking behind... delta is looking beyond. 80 thousand of us investing billions... in everything from the best experiences below... to the finest comforts above. we're not simply saluting his
in the country by 9/11 but nobody changed like these two guys changed. the reason we talked about. they were on the line. i think cheney was, you know, when bush leaves down, goes away, stays silent five years, cheney moves across the river and basically is in obama's face almost from day one. >> that was a break with tradition. >> that defines the men. >> the big problem bush had with cheney is a lot of the advice, particularly in the second term was not very good. cheney wanted to take out 0 the syrian reactor. i talked to people who were there when cheney was just, we've got to do it and bush was quite reluctant and cheney won't give up. and at the meeting bush rolls his eyes when cheney is just overadvocating. i think that was a break and i think people -- chris: what time was that? >> let's see, was it '07? i'm sorry -- >> you have a way, bob. that's great reporting. >> but no, that's -- when you roll your eyes -- chris: oh, yeah. >> at your vice president in front of the others, that's kind of the partnership is over. chris: when you leave town, you better have a rear guard left behind

's talk about some of the programs. earlier this week diane black, a republican from tennessee tweeted this. under president obama, food stamp enrollment has increased at ten times the rate of job creation. now, we know the spending on entitlements is expanding at the expense of discretionary spending things like education and infrastructure, but americans don't trust the government to make those decisions. what is the alternative? >> we have to figure out how to afford the government we want and want the government we can afford. that means some consistency. a lot of the issue here is not with the national debt but our unwillingness on the republican side to pay for it with revenue increases, tax increases, and on the democratic side the unwillingness to make some cuts in favor of the entitlement programs. we need to do both. president obama in recent months has been offering a compromise saying yes, we will cut some of our favorite programs. you've got to raise some of the revenues on folks you don't want to raise it on. republicans have simply been saying no a
for different reasons but believe better not eidenshink any policy obama has implemented is the big problem either but there's something much greater the thing that scares me the most is the bombing has mainstream radical thinking people believe crazy ideas most of them were talking about liberals that the two-party yesterweek he said that's not a problem in 10 years. plus deficit spending grows the economy. them more that the better the economy will be. i read almost everything i can online and there are people in mainstream publications who sat there and argued during the debt ceiling debate we should have $1 trillion point* to deposit in the treasury and wash our hands these are serious people and they call the two-party crazies' wife feel the whole world is spinning out of control and i am the only normal person with you and everybody has gone crazy. think about obama and the budget it is a huge massive fallacy masquerading as policy it is not what you think about economic growth is vernets he doesn't care about growth. i am sure you have read milton friedman which brings me to this ser
